Only recently did I encounter the music of Lomov, and soon after finding out about his music did I want more, more, more.

A first release by any netlabel for Berestez, and what can I say? It's such excellent material, it's amazing we haven`t heard anything from him before - subtle, moody, sentimental and stunning. After receiving this EP some days ago, I`ve listened to nothing else. This is the start of some fantastic releases for Kahvi in the future from Berestez.

On the one hand you can enjoy all 'The Zverstvo' live-shows they play in their hometown Krasnodar, on the other hand they enjoy the reputation of being the hippest band in town. Last but not least this reputation is based on their memorable live-shows...
